Known Issues


T8309 ecactl cluster up may continue despite hbase errors

In some cases the "ecactl cluster up" command may continue when it encounters hbase errors. 

Workaround: Please open a support case for assistance with hbase errors.

T7367  Issues when ecactl cluster up interrupted

Interrupting "ecactl cluster up" before it has completed may result in misconfigured references for ECA nodes. This can result in ECA components starting on incorrect ECA node or may prevent ECA components from coming up at all.

Resolution: Please open a support case for assistance. 

T13247 ECA fails to retrieve audit events from all PowerScales if one PowerScale is unreachable via autonfs

When multiple PowerScale clusters are being monitored, an unreachable PowerScale cluster may block ECA turboaudit component from retrieving events from the reachable PowerScale cluster(s).

Workaround: Contact to assist in recovering from this condition.

T22210 Intermittent Hbase Validation Warning in Manage Services with Mini ECA

For deployments with Mini ECA, Hbase validation warning may appear intermittently and recover on its own to OK possibly due to latency from the Mini ECA nodes.  Impact: In this case there is no impact to the Ransomware Defender or Easy Auditor functionality.

Workaround: Use the Manage Services ECA Monitor Event Rate graph to confirm that evtarchive component has rate for Received events and Sent events.  Configure RoboAudit to run daily to verify Easy Auditor query functionality.

T22450 Audit database save rate alarm raised for Ransomware Defender Only Deployments

The RSW0027 audit database save rate alarm is incorrectly raised for Ransomware Defender only deployments.

Workaround: Contact to change the evtarchive_event_rate_alarm_threshold threshold for this alarm to 0 in your environment so that alert is not triggered.

T23212 REST API continues to query cluster after removed

Turboaudit configured to use REST API to list audit log directories will continue to query clusters that have been removed for management from the Eyeglass interface.

Workaround: Contact for manual procedure for workaround.

Known Limitations


T8228 ECA Alarms not cleared automatically

ECA related alarms that appear in the Eyeglass Alarms window will not be cleared automatically. 

Workaround: Alarms must be manually cleared. Open the Alarms window on the Eyeglass web interface and select the Clear link for the alarm that you would like to clear.

T15457 HTML 5 vmware vcenter bug on OVA deployment

 Some versions of vmware vcenter HTML user interface have a known issue with OVA properties being read correctly post power on, leading to first boot issues.

Workaround: use the Flash client as a work around.

T17103 ECA version intermittently reported incorrectly

At times the ECA nodes report an incorrect version resulting in the RSW0010 alarm that ECA node version does not correspond to eyeglass version. This is an intermittent condition that clears itself without any action and does not impact ECA functionality.

T22924 ECA event rate alarm notification first instance

The ECA event rate alarm notification is sent on the first instance the alarm is raised. If alarm condition is met subsequently without clearing the alarm no further notification is sent.
